All of us here in the MSC Community are sending our warmest congratulations as he is nearing his first anniversary on becoming a fully ordained MSC.    This is a piece that NBC Digital News did on his ordination.

Fr Gabriel was ordained as a Deacon by Bishop Emeritus Hugh Slattery, MSC in Otjiwaronago on 10 December 2022 and his ordination to the priesthood took place on Saturday the 17th June 2023. The Archbishop of Windoek presided over the ordination which took place at Holy Rosary Parish, Swakopmund and Fr Carl Tratner MSC, our former Irish Provincial was also in attendance. It was such a joyous occasion for Fr Gabriel, his very proud family, his community, The South African Section of the MSC and the Irish Province.
